I See the Changes

from Perfection At It's Best by Illiteratty



Heraclitus said The river twice
You may not step within
It will not be the same
But I began to think like Parmenides
Who said that nothing moves
Except perhaps in name because

I see the changes
They cannot reach us
I see that change has
Nothing to teach us
But that we are like the river

You and I we’ve seen so much in our time
It almost boggles the mind
How could we be the same
But when I look at you
I see the true shining identity
That lies beyond a name

I see the changes
They cannot touch us
I see that change shows
Nothing so much as
That we are like the river
We are like the river

We are like the river in our continuity
Nothing can deliver us from flowing to the sea

I see the changes
They cause confusion
I see that change is
Just an illusion because
